33) Questions and Answers : Windows : Has Anyone Tried to Use The Latest UPDATE 6.2.18 ? (Message 800896)

Thanks for the pointers to some additional help.

I did reset the project with a handful of work units, but based on recent events I felt that they would error out anyway. After resetting, three units completed normally then another compute error like before. Have decided to set Seti to NNW and crunch for Malaria Control, not getting any errors there, until this gets sorted out.

You've got the "Can't acquire lockfile - exiting" error, so I'm not sure if cpu throttling may be the cause, as mentioned in Problem with restarting task and Frequent exited with zero status but no 'finished' file, or Task exited with zero status but no 'finished' file over at Einstein. Perhaps this FAQ has some tipps for you. And you should not reset the project. At least not until all WUs are finished and reported.

Gundolf

Upgraded to 6.2.18 and seem to be having some problems. Here is a snippit of the messages from Boinc. Got this type of message on several work units, other work units seem to finish fine. If left alone the work units are returned as Compute error.

Am running XP SP2. Pentium 4 3.2 GHz

I reset Seti, will see if this corrects the problem.

Anyone have any news about them -- looks like they have been offline for a few hours (since late morning Pacific time). Their homepage is not reachable.



The homepage is back.
